DIY WOOD BOARDS

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

for a long time ive wanted to hang something above my bed and just couldn’t figure out what. I thought about three big pictures but figured that I have so many other pictures in my room that I need to change it up. after seeing almost makes perfect wood boards she created for her wedding I knew that I wanted to kinda go with that look. i was worried about mixing two different wood types in my room but i think it actually works out really well.

 
1// i got my plywood from home depot and they cut it free for me. it was super cheap and i got it all for $12.
 
2// i went into photoshop and sized my sayings so that one word was much longer and bigger then the others to add emphasis. i then printed it out and taped it above the transfer paper on my board in the center and traced every letter. towards the end i realized the easiest way to do this was with a pen.
 
3// after tracing i went in and painted every.single.letter. when i planned this in my head i did not think this would take very long but it did. like very long. but i love how it turned out so it was all worth it.
 

 

 i know the verses and quotes on her are super cheesy (i couldn’t think of a better word haha) but its a good reminder every morning. i love how these turned out and would definitely take the time to do it again.

  1. Love this project! I've done something similar before on chalkboards but think I'll try plain wood next time like you did here. You're so right about it taking longer than you think, ha! The final product is worth it though. Great job!
